Q&A With Chris O'Donnell


You often hit the links for celebrity golf tournaments. Is golf your prescription for de-stressing and unwinding?

It is. More so when I was younger and traveling on location around the world. I feel at home on a golf course. But lately I spend more time playing beach volleyball. The kids are with me, and we’re all at the beach together. It’s a great workout, and the sand is so much easier on my back.

What’s a perfect day look like for you, when you have no place to be and no calls to return?

There’s something about being in your own house. You don’t have to be on some exotic vacation. The greatest thing is when something is cancelled, and now you don’t have plans and you think, “Wow, I’ve got nothing to do!” But as far as what I dream about, it’s the summertime. We spend our summers in Maine on a little island. Just long days, time on the water, great family time and memories, and getting a full day out of life with the kids. Great company, food, and wine. It’s pretty perfect.
